and the real clear politics average of polls has it all tied up. a rasmussen poll has governor romney up a couple of points after the debate. trying to do two things in the sunshine state, continue the momentum, that he began to build on, wednesday night and to show people as well, that he is not the scary guy the obama campaign made him out to be and stopped off at a cuban restaurant in tampa, and, shook hands and got takeout and folks seemed to appreciate it. and, at a campaign event in st. petersburg he looked back on debate night, a debate night many people saw as a big flop for president obama. >> did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either... i kept looking for a specific plan as to what he was going to do to create jobs and heard more of the same, stimulus, hiring more government workers, raising taxes, those things don't create jobs, they cost jobs. >> reporter: and the governor again repeating the findings of a study by the national federation of independent business which found over the long term, president obama's overall tax policies, when it comes to obamacare and his i
'll talk to the governor then. we are two days away from debate number one. a brand-new rasmussen poll shows many of you can still be persuaded for either candidate. 15% are considered uncommitted. you are open to changing your mind. what about this. good morning to both of you. rich, chris christie predicts a whole new race thursday morning. is it a game changer or not? >> we'll see. one thing i do think in this rasmussen poll goes to this, that people are more persuadable and susceptible to argument and changing their minds than we think. the democratic convention moved the needle in this race because bill clinton went out for 45 minutes and made a case on substance largely against mitt romney and he made it. and romney's 47% remark moved the needle. there is a narrow lead for president obama. so romney needs to make the case affirmatively for his program and why it's better than the president's. this is not just a referendum. this was the romney theory going in. he needs to prove that he's a better choice for the next four years. >> people are still persuadable. 15% is a pretty big

>> rose: we begin evening with anders fogh rasmussen, he's the secretary general of nato. this conversation was recorded on friday while he was attending the united nations general assembly. >> by the end of 2013 we will have-- 2014 we lch 352,000 afghan security forces and even more importantly quality wise they will be very capable. some time ago i visited afghanistan myself and i had an opportunity to observe with my own eyes afghan special operation forces in action and i was very impressed by what i saw. so the taliban miscalculate the situation if they think their situation will be better by the end of 2014. they will be faced with a very strong and capable afghan security force. >> rose: we continue by looking at a new project in brooklyn, it's a basketball arena and a development. it brought together interesting people, including mikhail prokhorov and irina prok rovea his sister, bruce ratner the developer and karen brooks hop hopkins. >> i think the barkley center is in keeping with the spirit of brooklyn. >> wh n what way? >> it's like very energetic and you kno

rasmussen admitted the killings of about 50 troops so far this year by afghan have damaged the relationship between the international forces and afghan police and military. in the meantime, the u.s. has all but written off working out a peace deal with the taliban. we are joined by by afghan haves to talk about this. she has written several books on afghanistan. welcome to democracy now! 2000, the number of u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan. >> there is a question of when the actual milestone was reached. we are hearing from some media that it was this past weekend. "the new york times" said it was last august. cbs news said it was last june. even when the count gets there is up for grabs, but what is more important, that speaks to the fact that the counting is not the point. the 2000 u.s. soldier is no more or less important than the first for the 17th or the 129th. what is left out of these accounts are the scores of thousands of afghan civilians that have been killed in this war. since the records began to be kept, which was not until 2007, we know 12,996 civilians have been counted by
